Tasting Note: On the red zinfandel, flavor-intensity scale, this elegant zinfandel provides welcome restraint while delivering complex aromatics and flavors that underscore fine winemaking.

Medium-intensity ruby in color, this wine has a medium-plus-intensity nose of boysenberry, hibiscus, red plum, black currant, dried cranberry, black raspberry and blossom.

On the palate the dry, medium-plus-bodied zinfandel has bright, just-ripened, red-and-black-fruit flavors suggested on the nose with just a hint of apricot on the medium-plus finish.

The wine is smooth in texture with medium acidity and ripe, slightly-velvety, medium-plus tannin.

There is balance between the fruit and tannin profile.

A zin this almost tastes like the long-lost relative of a pinot noir.

I paired with chocolate.


Bottle Note: Farmed by the Perlegos family. Native fermentation – Lodi Native Protocol. Bottled unfined & unfiltered. Ryan Sherman – Winemaker.
